Once graduating college I taught High School math in a private special education school in the Boston area. During this time I piloted technology tools to best meet the needs of students. This led me to receive my Masters degree in Curriculum and Technology. After teaching I worked for JFYNet, a Boston non-profit for 8 years where I was in 40+ school districts around CT, MA, RI, DC developing technology based custom education programs for students to prepare for various tests as well as credit recovery. Following JFYNet I spent 9 years in the Medway Public Schools as a technology integration specialist and finally then landed as the Director of Digital Learning and Technology in Millis where I have completed my first full year.
